A temporary roof or building is a sheeted structure designed to protect the area inside from the effects of weather, dust, etc. This guide is intended to give design and construction information to the suppliers and erectors of temporary roofs and buildings and intended for use by contractors during the building process.

An A4 full-colour, brand new, 224-page guide containing detailed practical guidance for most common types of scaffolding supported by structural research and calculation. Guidance is provided for an expanded range of standard structures which includes independent scaffolding, interior birdcages, chimney stack scaffolds, loading bays, ladder-access towers, free-standing towers, lift shaft towers and putlog scaffolding. A range of TG20 ‘compliance sheets’ is included for these structures. (Price shown includes £6 Postage & Packaging)
This guidance identifies the specification and test requirements and minimum markings to be found on all EN74-1 scaffold fittings. The 2015 update sees no change other than dates. EN74-1 is unlikely to change in the next four years.
TG4:19 had amendments predominantly in relation to the orientation of ring bolts where current thinking is that settlement is probably greater than side wind loads so reduces potential shear loads on the bolt. Other minor changes were cosmetic. A recent update in April 2019 saw the removal of one reference only when the guidance was reissued as TG4:19.
This guidance explains the differences between ‘supplementary’ and ‘check’ couplers and gives typical design applications where high coupler forces could be expected and where additional loadbearing capacity to connections may be required. It also contains guidance on coupler configurations and expected safe working loads (SWLs) where supplementary couplers are used. To ensure that SWL values are as accurate as possible, data provided within this document is based on practical testing rather than calculation.
